Sponsor WSG at the Snow-Camp Alpine Challenge 2013

Tue 08 January 13

As if last year wasn't hard enough, team WSG are back again competing in the Alpine Challenge in Morzine on 17-20th January. This year we're taking some of Snow-Camp graduates with us, and we need your help to raise even more money for them

The idea of snowboarding 150km in 2-days and doing a 10km hike up a mountain for charity, first seemed like a doddle. Hindsight is such a wonderful thing, but through freezing fog, ice, sleet and eventually blue-bird skys and a foot of fresh, team WSG somehow managed to complete it last year, and together with the other teams help raise over £25,000 for the charity Snow-Camp.

This year the event is back on, albeit with a new name, and rather belatedly we have decided to do it all again. Instead of running a competition to find a few mad souls to join us like last year, we have decided to bring along two of the people that have benefited from Snow-Camps work, and have gone on to graduate as snowboard instructors.

The event is being held in Morzine from the 17th-20th January, and we would like you to get involved in helping more kids from underprivileged inner-city lives have a brighter future, and make a donation to Team WSG on our JustGiving page. All of the money we raise goes directly to the charity.
